Nick Young's 360-degree layup

By Dan Steinberg


In early October, John Wall performed a nifty 360-degree layup for a modest crowd at George Mason University. The YouTubed footage, seen below, earned more than 200,000 views.

Tuesday night in Los Angeles, Nick Young did Wall one better, performing nearly the identical move in an actual game against the NBA champions. That made it good enough to become SportsCenter's top play, which probably means more than 200,000 people saw it. Reporting from Michael Lee:

"I've been practicing that for a while," Young said with a grin.

"I don't get no credit. It was all his moves," Wall said. "I told him that was one of my tricks, and he did a good job."

Now, sure, the Wizards lost. But I just counted, and five of SportsCenter's top 10 plays featured losing teams. So it's all good.

Hey, Nick? Please don't make yourself trade bait because this organization is proned to trade players when they emerge and burst on the scene like you're doing.

Your game really really improved...and, it shows you're practicing a lot.

Nick, you were just a little baby when I first saw you. Now, look at you!!
